Deontay Wilder makes Tyson Fury jibe ahead of Las Vegas rematch
Deontay Wilder has said his”two-year-old punches harder” than Tyson Fury ahead of Saturday’s world heavyweight title rematch in Las Vegas.
The unbeaten fighters go head-to-head at the MGM Grand on Saturday after a thrilling draw in their initial bout back in December 2018.
Fury, who believed he must have won the very first fight, has stated that he will”need a knockout” to prevent”another contentious decision”.
But the’Bronze Bomber’ was bemused by the suggestion Fury will become the first man to knock him out.
“Fury, such as I have said earlier, has pillows as fists,” Wilder told Sky Sports News.
“That is why I was able to keep on applying pressure on him [from the last struggle ].
“We are all aware that Fury can not punch.
“The figures don’t lie, so we could observe that my two-year-old cries harder than him.
“I do not believe anything he is saying. When approaching a fight fighters need to have particular strategies and tactics.
“Sometimes you’ve got to manipulate individuals – and he’s hoping to get them to believe something even he doesn’t.”
Fury has verified there is an arrangement in place to get a fight between Wilder and himself – whatever the outcome of this weekend’s rematch.
He said:”I believe that the money is too big to not have it.
“This really is the prizefighting game and there is too much cash in the kettle for him not to desire the rematch, even if he loses.”
Asked if he would need a rematch, Fury explained:”I do not lose!
“I’m using a rematch in any event. All I do is win – unless I get a draw!”
